    It used to be that Sandals would not allow two people of the same sex to share a room- they were trying to keep the romantic ambiance of the resorts. Times have changed and with all of the weddings and a general openess all around Sandals changed the rules( quite awhile ago) will allow two people of the same sex to share a room! I just had a wedding go down to Sandals Negril and quite a few of the guests shared a room with no problem at all!

    One area where we have to call and speak to the resort manager for permission is to book single gentlemen. As long as they are with a wedding party it's no problem but outside of that it is extremely hard. Sandals is very concerned that their guests feel comfortable at all times- they don't want a guy hitting on a married woman.

    It sounds like your TA probably doesn't sell much Sandals for weddings and wasn't aware of the change in policy.

    One thing to keep in mind is that the resorts ONLY have king beds so the two people will have to share the same bed. They can bring in cots to the suite levels only - for the lower category rooms the king beds don't leave enough extra space to put in a cot and walk around both the bed and the cot.

      Thanks Jennifer! I just needed to vent my frustration. I think what bothers me most is that I have yet to hear back from our TA. Either way, friends and family are starting to reserve their rooms so if he doesn't want those reservations, that's fine. All that matters to me is that the people that want to be there are able to be there.

        That's strange that they aren't responding.....if you need any help just let me know.

        I'm a venter also- once i get it out I'm fine ( my poor hubby gets to hear it all!) he's a good guy though and understands that I need about 15 minutes of good crabbing then it's over!!

          I went to Sandals Dunns river in Sept 2008. We rode the bus from airport with a same sex couple (female), we saw them around the resort and even on one off resort excursion. No one harassed them and they were obviously a couple!
